Fox announced that its new drama series 9-1-1 will return for a second season. The series premiered Jan. 3 and is considered a hit.
From creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear, the drama series explores the high-pressure experiences of police officers, firefighters, and emergency operators who are thrust into the most-frightening, shocking, and heart-wrenching situations. Angela Bassett stars in the show alongside Peter Krause, Connie Britton, Oliver Stark, Kenneth Choi, Aisha Hinds, and Rockmond Dunbar.
Gary Newman and Dana Walden, CEOs of the Fox Television Group, stated, “With a bold concept, award-winning stars and a flawless execution, Ryan, Brad, and Tim have done it again. They have tapped into the cultural zeitgeist and reimagined the procedural as only they could, bringing it to life with a dream team of actors led by Angela, Peter, and Connie. This is storytelling at its best and we’re so pleased that it’s resonated with our audience. We’d like to thank everyone involved with this production for their stellar work, and we look forward to another thrilling season of 9-1-1.”
The series premiere of 9-1-1 has grown to 10.7 million viewers in Live+7, which is a 57 percent lift from Live+Same Day. The premiere has also risen to over 15 million viewers in delayed viewing. That ranks as the highest-rated debut since The Good Doctor.
20th Century Fox Television produces the show in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. Creators Murphy, Falchuk, and Minear serve as executive producers and writers on the series. Bassett and Alexis Martin Woodall also serve as executive producers. Bradley Buecker is an executive producer and also directed the series premiere.
